Hello, I am Frank Benefiel, co-owner of Arizona Classics with my wife Mary. Arizona Classics has been in business for over 12 years in Tempe, Arizona. I grew up in Wichita Kansas with good Midwestern values and have lived in the Phoenix area for the last 24 years.

 After running a large wholesale bakery for 30 years, I decided to focus my time and attention on my passion - cars. I began my career working around cars at the age of 4, helping my dad out in the garage. I spent my youth repairing and customizing my pedal cars and bicycles. I graduated to go-carts and mini-bikes and then cars and motorcycles. I was always buying, selling and trading.

 My primary business is the sale of cars and trucks and anything else with wheels. I also do restorations and some repair on vintage cars and hot rods. Shop time is a very reasonable and I don't generally take on more than one vehicle at a time. So your car is my priority.

 The first rule here at Arizona Classics is to do the job right with exceptional craftsmanship and imagination. The second rule is to have fun. The one thing you can count on here at Arizona Classics is fair and honest treatment and no "hard sell". The one thing I am not is a salesman. If you want one of my vehicles, that is great. If not, that's ok too.
